He may not have played for Indian cricket team for two-and-a-half years due to a dip in form and pace, but cricketer Irfan Pathan, 27, says he survived bad times because of his family’s support.

"I believe that if your friends and family are with you, no time can be too hard to survive," says Irfan, who recently made a comeback to the ODI team.

IrfanWhen asked if the Pathan brothers plan to tie the knot anytime soon, Irfan said, "My priority is to focus on my game and play for India. As far as the wedding is concerned, nothing is decided yet. However, I am sure it will take place only after Yusuf bhai gets married."

To this Yusuf Pathan, 29, added sheepishly, “Our family will decide when I will get married.”

The brothers, who were in the Capital for the promotion of an upcoming cricket-based reality show on UTV Bindass, got nostalgic about the wonderful time they spent in Delhi.

“Having been part of Delhi Daredevils, I got to spend a lot of time here. I love Delhi’s winter season and greenery. I also love the food of Karim’s in Old Delhi,” reveals Irfan, the talkative of the two.

The brothers are also praying for cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s 100th century.

“If Sachin can make 99 centuries, he can make 150 centuries as well. Yeh 100th century aaj ya kal toh honi hi hai. I don’t think he is feeling any pressure,” says Irfan.
